Aviatrix Systems, a pioneer in Enterprise Cloud-defined Networking, and Megaport (USA) Inc, the US subsidiary of Megaport Limited (ASX: MP1) (“Megaport”), the global leading provider of Elastic Interconnection services, today unveiled a Secure Remote Access AWS Direct Connect Bundle at AWS re:Invent 2016 in Las Vegas.

AWS Direct Connect (DX) Bundles are a set of advanced hybrid reference architectures proven to reduce complexity and provide peak performance highlighted by use case. The new Remote Access DX Bundle enables customers to procure secure VPN connectivity to Virtual Private Clouds (VPC) with Aviatrix secure cloud networking technology integrated with AWS VPC, along with Megaport’s software defined model for AWS Direct Connect. Benefits of this solution include:

  • Scalable and elastic, direct access to AWS;
  • Agility and fast time to service;
  • Lower operating expenditures; and
  • Reduced time spent planning network capacity through aligned networking costs and capabilities with AWS’ consumption-based model.

“Megaport and Aviatrix share a passion and technical aptitude for solving complex IT issues,” commented Denver Maddux, CEO of Megaport. “Enterprises are demanding a network model that aligns to their on-demand cloud consumption strategy. As security remains a top concern for cloud-enabled enterprises, Aviatrix is the natural fit for this bundle. Their remote user access software complements our Software Defined Network, which provides elastic interconnection to AWS Direct Connect. This unique bundle will create encrypted peering between Virtual Private Clouds and Virtual Networks across regions and clouds and seamlessly provide user VPN connectivity across AWS Cloud.”

“At Aviatrix, we believe that networking is a foundational element of cloud computing and should be as dynamic, scalable, and disposable as compute and storage,” said Steven Mih, CEO of Aviatrix. “We are excited to work with AWS and Megaport to provide customers with an integrated 1-click option for all-inclusive secure connectivity to AWS.”

Modern applications are driven by vastly different needs than those of the past. Today’s applications require resources from multiple providers, and are not tied to a single location, such as an on-premises data center or a single, public cloud provider. These applications require rapid changes in design to meet workload or customer needs, and cannot be constrained by traditional networking architecture.
